Environmental Impact

In a Life Cycle Analysis, Applegate's Cotton Armor was found to be 54% more energy efficient* in production than fiberglass. This is due to the use of recycled renewable resources, and application of modern, energy-efficient electrical equipment, rather than the blast furnaces utilized in fiberglass manufacturing. Cotton Armor production was also found to result in less than 53% CO2 equivalent (Kilograms of CO2 and other gasses) and 29% less water than fiberglass manufacturing. The LCA highlights the environmental benefits of reusing American resources to further save American energy and the environment. It should also be noted that proper installation is easier with Cotton Armor than competitive products and thus with the resulting superior fit, Cotton Armor can provide even more energy savings over the life of a building. The LCA did not take this into account, had it done so the environmental advantages of Cotton Armor would have been even greater.



By making use of natural fibers as opposed to overly manufactured man-made materials, Cotton Armor is the demonstrated choice for a sustainable and environmentally friendly insulation-saving both raw materials and energy through the use of recycled cotton. Cotton is harvested annually, and thus considered a rapidly renewable resource. This enhances Cotton Armor's ecological sustainability over other insulations. The production of cotton naturally harnesses the power of the sun, lowering its environmental impact compared to fossil fuel dependent insulations.
